Newpage Specialty Papers:

"The paper technology foundation did a wonderful job in opening up the possibilities for me once I graduated. The foundation gave me an opportunity to do things most college students donít get the chance experience.

The professors in WMU and PTF staff both enabled and empowered me to be an effective engineer the day I stepped into the real world and onto the mill floor. Not only did I get an education, but I got experience along the way which put me months if not years ahead of the rest of the graduating engineers."
